Comment Error .doc

OpenOffice Version 4.0.1
OS: Windows 8

There is an error that occurs when comments are present in Writer. I found that if the user clicks inside one of the comments and attempts to scroll to the left (assuming that they cannot currently see the entire document with their current window), the screen continually jumps back to the comment where the active cursor marker is.
Steps to recreate:
1.	Open attached file in Writer
2.	Click inside one of the comments/notes
3.	Either zoom in or reduce the window size so that the entire document cannot be seen at once.
4.	Use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the window and scroll to the left.

The attached file demonstrates the issue.

I was able to reproduce this bug by doing the following:

1. Open a blank Writer document.
2. Enter any text (for example, “Test”) and highlight it.
3. From the Insert menu, select Comment. 
4. Without entering a comment, leaving the cursor in the edit comment box, try to scroll vertically.

The result of this is being dragged back to the edit comment box while scrolling. This works whether you use the scroll wheel on a mouse, on a touchpad, or along the side of UI.

This is a bug of small importance by most standards.

This can be worked-around by merely successfully adding the comment and moving on.
